At Kew you can view these items onscreen and print only the pages you need and it's a bit cheaper per page (25p last time I used the system), so if you want a really large number of items a trip to Kew might work out cheaper overall.
Or if you go to Kew, take a digital camera/smartphone and take photos of the screens. Works out a bit cheaper.
